AHMM wins planning for Waterloo student digs
Burgeoning practice AHMM has won planning permission for a 1,093-room student accommodation block in Waterloo, London
The project for developer Urbanest features a school, flexible ‘start up’ business space, a gym, swimming pool, cafe and landscaped gardens.
The 6,000m² secondary school, to be operated by educational provider Alpha Plus Group, will have capacity for 700 students.
An earlier 16-storey scheme by Sheppard Robson for the Westminster Bridge Road site proposed 32,500m² of office space.
AHMM’s project is planned to complete by September 2015.
